‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Has A Very Different Stan Lee Cameo

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Has A Very Different Stan Lee Cameo

Of course, Stan Lee wouldn't comment on how "different" his cameo is from any of his other roles, but we saw in today's Nerd Alert that Stan Lee has had cameo roles in 24 Marvel movies, dating back to The Trial of the Incredible Hulk back in 1989. Most of his cameos feature just one memorable line of dialogue, so perhaps the one "additional thing" could simply be another line. Or, he could be shown on screen in a much different way entirely.

Given the destructive nature of Apocalypse, played by Oscar Isaac, it's possible they could change things up and actually have Stan Lee be one of this villain's victims, marking the first time he dies in one of these cameo appearances. That's only speculation at this point, and it could be "different" in other ways, like perhaps he has an actual supporting role instead of a cameo, or perhaps he could be a motion-captured or CGI character, of some kind. Sadly, we'll have to wait until next May to find out how "different" this cameo really is.

Stan Lee Teaches Cameo School in ‘Avengers 2’ Audi Commercial

Stan Lee Teaches Cameo School in ‘Avengers 2’ Audi Commercial

Back in March, director Kevin Smith announced his first wave of actors for Mallrats 2 by releasing a photo of himself alongside Jason Mewes, Stan Lee and Michael Rooker. The filmmaker revealed that they had all gathered to shoot an "adorable Stan-centric spot for Audi that you'll see online as we get closer to the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron". Today, Audi has released the full two-minute ad, directed by and starring Kevin Smith, which shows Stan Lee passing on his secrets to success in cameo acting with Tara Reid, Michael Rooker, Jason Mewes and Lou Ferrigno.

While the ad doesn't feature any stars of Avengers: Age of Ultron, it does mention the Marvel adventure several times. Stan Lee is seen riding in the new Audi S8, and while this particular car won't be featured in the movie, it will include the new R8, driven by Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.). The sequel will also feature Audi's 2015 TTS and 2015 A3. The R8, which made its initial debut in Iron Man, returns as an even more powerful supercar, while the iconic Audi TTS will make its big screen debut as a completely redesigned coupe.

So, while these actors aren't necessarily confirmed for Mallrats 2 quite yet, don't be surprised to hear them signing on in the near future. Also, since Jason Mewes is likely coming back as Jay, it certainly seems possible that Kevin Smith will once again play Jay's sidekick, Silent Bob. Kevin Smith still has three more movies to shoot before Mallrats 2, including Clerks III, which starts production this May, followed by Hit Somebody in September and Moose Jaws in early 2016, so we have plenty of time before Mallrats 2 actually begins to roll.

In the original Mallrats, Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith played Jay and Silent Bob, with Stan Lee appearing as himself in a cameo towards the end, where he gives a memorable speech to comic book fanatic Brody (Jason Lee). Michael Rooker portrayed the villainous Mr. Svenning, the father of Claire Forlani's Brandi Svenning, who is putting together a game show to be held at the mall. Are you excited that these characters may very well return for Mallrats 2? Take a look at Kevin Smith's photo, and stay tuned for more details.

‘Marvel's Agent Carter’ Stan Lee Cameo Revealed

Agent Carter just wouldn't be part of the Marvel universe without a Stan Lee cameo. The comic book icon will be making his first appearance on the show's fifth episode. Titled The Blitzkrieg Button, Stan Lee will have a brief interaction with Dominic Cooper as fugitive on the run Howard Stark.

In The Blitzkrieg Button, Peggy (Hayley Atwell) may be in more trouble than usual when fugitive Howard Stark suddenly returns for mysterious reasons. And Chief Dooley chases a new clue all the way to Europe that threatens to destroy Peggy's future at the SSR. Stan Lee will be bringing a bit of 'levity' to an otherwise rather somber episode.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Deleted Stan Lee Cameo Revealed!

Heading into a Marvel movie, we can always expect two things. One: We're sure to have a good time. And two: A Stan Lee cameo. It just wouldn't be a Marvel movie without Stan the Man showing up in some capacity, and Guardians of the Galaxy was no exception. In fact, the creator of the Marvel universe as we know it today was set to appear in two different scenes in this sci-fi epic. Only one of them made it into the movie. Direrctor James Gunn now shares a photo from the deleted Stan Lee cameo featuring a stand-in, and explains why it's not in the finished film.

The scene in question actually has Stan Lee sitting inside the Collector's Museum. Visiting Dragon Con, director James Gunn explained the scene in detail for the first time, saying that Stan would have appeared alongside a Chituari soldier, Dark Elf, Adam Warlock's cocoon, Cosmo and Howard the Duck. Groot discovers Stan Lee in his cage, only to be flipped off by the creator of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
